Names--The Mirror of Society.
Liu, Yu-zhen
Everyone has a name. Names are more than a symbol or label. The culture of a people finds expression in the language they employ. When personal names are studied historically, philosophically, etymologically, and psychologically the reflection of the social and natural environment can be perceived. This paper focuses on the analysis of the formation of personal names, the semantic meaning and the connotation embedded in names, and the connection between given names and Chinese culture. The paper concludes that names are the mirror of society. (KFT)
